For his end-of-school project, Colin's class read the book Flat Stanley and then had to take a paper Stanley with them somewhere to photograph their fun together. We originally wanted to take him to Mystic, CT but since we forgot him on the kitchen table (it's so much harder to remember to bring two dimensional kids, alas) we had to make a back-up plan. Grampy had just opened the pool and the boys braved the chilly water temp and dove right in. Flat Stanley seemed to enjoy it... while he lasted. We discovered that Paper Kids are not very resilient after all. Good thing our 3D kids are made of tougher stuff!
